An alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again...and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Vrataski take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy!Written by

In the opening sequence Cage's chopper lands in Trafalgar Square opposite the National Gallery. This is the same spot where the Doctor's Tardis was set down by chopper in Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor, a year earlier. See more »
When flying towards the 'pyramid' the pilot says "30 seconds" [til arrival], but it appears they are really about 2 seconds away from the target. When shot down, they are much farther away than when the pilot originally said "30 seconds" and they have to make up that ground on foot. See more »

Stop! Wait, wait, wait, wait! Stop! Wait a second, wait a second! I've been thinking... I mean, this thing is in my blood. So maybe there's some way I can transfer it to you.
I've tried everything, it doesn't work.
I mean have you tried... you know... tried ALL the options.
Oh, you mean sex? Yeah, tried it.
...how many times?

Superb! I rarely get to go to a movie with my older son after his siblings came along. We did manage to go to this movie in the cinemas. Not only were we glad we chose this movie to watch, but two years later, we still recall the impact this movie had on both of us.
This science fiction story is deeply satisfying. The movie treats the viewers as intelligent people. It is not in the same league of a plethora of science fiction movies that hit the cinemas every year. For example this year we have Independence Day 2, a high budget sequel to a high budget b-movie from a long time ago. It is profoundly forgettable. That is in stark contrast to Edge of Tomorrow, which has stayed with me for so long and today motivated me to come here on IMDb to write a review after two years!
This movie is a must watch. Thanks for reading.
